The Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) trades at a premium to net asset value. in most cases, it is unwise to pay $1.20 for $1.00 worth of assets.
The GBTC premium exists because there are a dearth of vehicles for traditional investors to obtain exposure to Bitcoin. However, the premium is likely to disappear when more investment products, particularly a Bitcoin ETF, become available.
GBTC investors can monetize, or cash in, the premium before it dissipates by selling GBTC and investing in the SkyBridge Bitcoin Fund L.P. The potential rewards for an investor who implements this strategy are significant, regardless of the price of Bitcoin.
